Something Quiet This Night Sings

By John Valdez

Sci-Fi | eBook


Dingo Blaine is a xenographer on a planet seeking pleasures both alien and bizarre. He desperately survives in a society that despises humanity in order to simultaneously exploit it. This is a tale where addiction might take a different toll, and be of a different quality or consistency—where violence and friendship go hand in hand, in the quest for the perfect jook, an egg that you put in your ear. Its cost is astronomical in the economy of a primitive world, and a good jooky song can send its user to the brink of ultimate ecstasy for the right price. The author takes readers on a radical roller coaster of exasperation and self-pity starring Dingo and his side kick Debe who together attempt to conquer all without a single clue as to what they are doing or how to do it. It is an adventure in as much as it's an invitation to dive deep into the mind of an insatiable addict. Readers get to see Dingo's warped sense of morality voluntarily trapped in a world that has no idea about what it means to be human unless there is profit involved. This story is one of many different selections as part of a collection of stories being prepared for publication as a book of sci-fi and fantasy to delight readers of the genre.
